While there could be some professional pressure or work/life balance tension this week, it brings the right reminder at the right time. It is the Sun's opposition with Jupiter and Pluto in your career sector midweek and then with Saturn before he leaves your home and family sector next week that is responsible for this. However, with all three planets in your career sector in retrograde motion but new doors opening on the job front next month, this is a valuable chance to put your work/life balance to the test. For at this is all that this is and does not imply that there are challenges are things are taking a turn for the worse. This is just Saturn's second week back in your career sector and in retrograde motion doesn't want or need you to rush into anything. The right work/life balance is something that will benefit both your home and professional lives and needs to be seen as an opportunity and not a challenge.
The asteroid Juno finds herself in the wrong place at the right time and while this might create some work tension or job pressure, especially towards the end of the week the timing couldn't be better. Juno returned to your work sector in November for what should have been a two month visit, but instead a retrograde turn not only kept her here but pivotally just as Venus turned retrograde in your income and Saturn in your career sector. As the queen of commitment, Juno has been a small but vital player when it comes to developing a sense of commitment across the income, work and career fronts. The week begins with Juno back in at friendly aspect to Venus, for the third time in as many months and with Saturn gone from your career sector, on the income and job fronts this is a chance to regroup. It is later in the week and heading into the weekend that Mars will stress test how well you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.
While the Moon left your career sector over the weekend, even in ordinary times this would allow you to begin the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled. However, even more so when the week begins with a friendly aspect between Neptune in your career and the Sun in your income sector peaking. This is not only a good way to start the week but gives you the confidence to embrace a shift that has taken place over recent weeks. This was not only the Moon's first visit to your career sector since Mars left but since both planets staying on turned retrograde. The latest was Ceres just last week, with the dwarf planet turning her mission to update your professional needs, priorities and a sense of purpose onto the rear view mirror. This will reveal that Mars' urgency is gone, replaced by a chance to spend time back at the drawing board, working with the cards that have already been dealt.
Starting the week with the Moon in your career sector is always an advantage but even more so when this is the first visit since Mars began his longest visit in 32 years. The Moon has already aligned with Mars over the weekend but while it will be gone by Tuesday, a friendly aspect to the South Node in your work sector will unmask the new dynamics on the job and career fronts. With Mars not leaving your career sector until January 2021 and the South Node not only in your work sector until January 2022 but creating a series of eclipses in that time, they will dominate the second half of this professional year. With the Sun not only returning to your income sector next week but beginning the most lucrative months of 2020, your over the horizon radar will be picking up on a sense of anticipation across the income, work and career fronts. This makes it less about starting the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled and more what this is picking up on.
Since Pluto's return to your work sector in 2008, at some point during the month long wind down of your old solar year, he will clash with the Sun. While this year you have Jupiter and Saturn in your work sector as well and the Sun will clash with all three before returning to Leo next week, as they are in retrograde motion there is unlikely to be much push back. The Sun is stress testing how well you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off and in the process this could create some work tension or job pressure, especially midweek. However, the fact that all three planets in your work sector are in retrograde motion and want you to pull back is not the only mitigating factor. The Moon will move through your career sector midweek, sharpening your professional instincts and forming a friendly aspect to all three planets. While sharp professional instincts will make it easier to work smarter this will also help you retain your job confidence.
While Saturn gone from your work sector and the Moon's visit last week and a chance to check in over, all the focus shifts onto Venus in your career sector this week. It was over the weekend that over three months after returning for what should have been a 24 day visit aimed at fuelling your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction, Venus moved into her final four weeks. Now the only planet in either of your two professional houses, this was always going to put the focus on Venus this week but that is not the only reason. Venus will spend the early part of the week at a friendly aspect to Juno in your income sector, for the third time in as many months. This will help Venus in her mission to steer the rest of this professional year in a lucrative direction. She will get a further boost when the Moon returns on Thursday to fuel your professional instincts and imagination.
With the Moon having just left your work sector over the weekend and Monday Mercury's first full day in direct motion in your career sector there is reason to pause before rushing into the week. This is also a chance to pay attention to a friendly aspect between the Sun in your career and Neptune in your work sector and especially where this is inspiring your imagination. However, there is another reason to hold back and that is because this is a week where your work/life balance will be put to the test. It begins on Tuesday when the Sun will move into opposition with Jupiter in your home and family sector, before going onto oppose Pluto midweek. As your home and professional lives push against each other this might create some professional pressure or work/life balance tension but with both planets in your work sector in retrograde motion, Mercury barely moving and Venus yet to return to your career sector, there is no urgency.
Starting the week with the Moon in your work sector is always an advantage, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters from the get go. Even more so when this is the Moon's first visit since Mars returned and since he began your longest visit to your work sector in 32 years. With Mars here for the rest of the year, the Sun returning to your career sector next week and the South Node in your income sector for the first time in 17 years, you are on the eve of real movement across the income, work and career fronts. The Moon will return with a chance to check in with Mars every four weeks for the rest of the year. While the Moon will be gone by Tuesday this allows you to begin the week with an intuitive read on work and job matters and on Mars' new influence. It is at the other end of the week that Juno's clash with Mars will stress test how well you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off and this couldn't be more important.
While it is business as usual in your two professional houses until the Sun and Mercury return to your career sector next month and Uranus turns retrograde in your work sector at around the same time, there is a chance to check in this week. Especially when it comes to work and job matters, with the Moon returning to your work sector mid week. It is from Tuesday to Thursday that you will have an intuitive read on work and job matters, while an alignment with Uranus on Wednesday could trigger some unexpected, serendipitous or eureka moments. However, it is the Moon's final hours that could be the most significant, especially when it comes to turning financial tension into motivation. The Moon will spend its final hours in your work sector at a friendly aspect to all three planets in your income sector, just as they are coming under pressure. These are significant planets who will return the favour, creating a boost in job and financial confidence.
This is a week where there is a mixed bag of influences but even the more challenging aspects happen at the right time. The week begins with a friendly aspect between Venus in your work and Juno in your career sector already underway. This is the third time that they have come together in as many months and is the last time before Venus leaves your work sector next month. This will peak on Tuesday and they will be separating by Wednesday, though not before getting the week off to a good start on both fronts. It is the Moon's return to your work sector on Thursday, for the last time before Venus leaves that will give you an intuitive read on how to make her final weeks here count. It is over the weekend that Mars will clash with Juno, creating some tension between your home and professional lives that will extend into the early days of next week. However, that this work/life balance reminder begins over the weekend is a case of perfect timing.
It was a given that the Sun would clash with all three planets in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart before leaving your work sector next week, making any work tension or job pressure midweek a given. This means that rather than a sign there is a problem or that something is wrong, this is simply the Sun's clash with Jupiter and Pluto stress testing how well you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. It doesn't even matter whether you pass or fail the test because the Sun's job is to illuminate where things are out of balance, aware that you can't change what you can't see and that Jupiter and Pluto are the planets of luck and change. That this happens just days after Mercury's direct turn in your work sector over the weekend and with Venus yet to arrive, means there is no urgency from the busy side of life's fence. This is a call to work smarter, helped by the support from both planets in your income sector.
While having the South Node in your career sector is giving you access to a lot of untapped professional potential, especially from the 13 months Jupiter spent here before leaving last December, it is not making life any busier. Apart from a lunar eclipse last month and a total solar eclipse it will create here in December, the South Node is playing a long game, working behind the scenes to keep things on track. At the same time, while you now have Mars in your income sector and this will be starting to make an impact, things are yet to get busy but they are about to. It will begin with the Sun's return to your work sector next week, when he will not only open new doors and shine the solar spotlight on your work situation, job matters and options but on possibilities across the income, work and career fronts. With the Moon returning just ahead of the Sun next week, make the most of this last full week before things are set to become a lot busier.
